Fletch Nudity For Dinner

If anyone tuned into Close Up on TVNZ last night, they would have seen a story about the "Nude Blacks", a team of guys who like to play rugby in the nude. Last night they had a young woman joining them as well, playing in the nude, while spectators cheered them on. Yes, the station did blur out the frontal genitalia, but plenty of bare bums were shown. The young lady thought it was a great thing to do. I'm not going to post a link here, but the video can be seen on TVNZ's site.

I just have to ask - is this the way we want to be perceived by the rest of the world when NZ is trying to be an ambassador for the Rugby World Cup? My parents, both in their 70s, were horrified, and I didn't think very much of it either. My mother said she never thought she'd see something like this screened on the News, let alone at dinner time when children are sure to be watching.

I don't consider myself a prude, but I think TVNZ, Close Up, and Mark have embarrassed our country during RWC.

This gets filed under the small things amuse small minds category. The media needs to grow up, they're like a bunch of teenagers giggling over a dirty joke.
